I would not have been able to continue working on DOTU throughout all these years had it not been for the support of so many of my readers, and I owe all of you a huge thank you! If you’d like to support the comic so it can continue to grow, there are several ways you can help.
Support on Patreon
Patreon has been keeping DOTU running since 2014, and it’s even grown big enough to support a bonus page every month and an entire patron-only side story for Merritt. I’m a full-time artist, and DOTU is a significant part of my career. My goal is to one day be able to make a comfortable living working full time on DOTU and its related projects, and to increase my update schedule to twice a week, all the while keeping DOTU free for everyone to read. You can help DOTU reach this goal by pledging on Patreon, and in return, you’ll get access to lots of bonus content! Check out my Pareon page below to learn more.
I would especially like to thank the following top Patreon contributors for their outstanding level of support.
- Arthur A. Durand
- Chris S.
- Jordan N.
- Nightshade Farmount
- Stephanie “Sero” W
Tip me with Ko-fi
Patreon is a subscription program, and I know that doesn’t work for everyone’s budget. If you’d like to make a one-time contribution to the comic, you can send any amount from $3 and up via Ko-fi. Money I earn through here will go toward business expenses and equipment that are needed for the comic. Right now, I’m working toward a surge protector with battery backup so I don’t have to lose work from power outages anymore.
Support for Free
Subscribe on Webtoon
Webtoon offers Patreon bonuses for creators who reach certain subscriber and pageview thresholds. I always love for readers to read DOTU here at the main site, but if you’d like to throw the comic a bit of extra support, you can subscribe to the comic on Webtoon and read it there in mobile episode format too. Webtoon’s vertical scroll format is a great way to quickly review past scenes.
Vote on Top Webcomics
The higher a comic ranks on Top Webcomics, the more referrals they get. I also post bonus art (“voting incentives”) that you can see after you vote. You can vote for DOTU once per day per machine. I get more referrals from Top Webcomics than I get from anywhere else, so votes are extremely helpful! You can find the vote button in the sidebar and below every comic page. And here!
Spread the Word!
Webcomic creators who don’t work with publishers usually have a pretty small advertising budget, so we’re always super grateful when readers share our comics with their friends! One of the easiest ways to do this is to share DOTU’s page updates on your preferred social media platform. I post page update notices on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. Shares are never expected or demanded, but always appreciated!
Whenever there are new opportunities to support the comic, I’ll post them here!
